Another great read on the benefits of sending your child to camp from the author of “Homesick and Happy” Michael Thompson. Comparing time spent away from home at a camp vs. a resume building world.

“I know that many young people do not …really know how strong they are, how competent they are or even who they are until they get away from their parents and test themselves in a new and challenging environment”- Michael Thompson.

Not only can camp help youth AND adults grow as a person but also to grow in their faith. A week spent in a christ-centered outdoor ministry exposes people to challenges, eye opening experiences, a new community and for most is a pivotal part in their faith journey.
